I have been the Head Athletic Trainer of the Anaheim Ducks since the 2005 season. I have used your Bunga Pads for a variety of reasons. They are very durable and a cost effective approach to relieving the painful condition called Lace Bite. I have at least 15 players that use them on a daily basis. We use the LaceBite Pad, the Malleolar Sleeve, and also the Achilles' Heel Pad. Not only do the players believe in the product’s ability to take away the discomfort from Lace Bite, it also is a way to increase the comfort they feel inside their skates. – Tim Clark, M.Ed., ATC Head Athletic Trainer Anaheim Ducks
PROFILIING SKATES(explained further- Hover mouse on Services Button to get to Blade Profiling page containing Full descrition) Profling or Contouring is a process of the changing the skate blade to apply more blade to the ice while at the same time creating proper forward knee bend in your skating. Properly contoured skates are based on a few simple factors.
> Skate Design & standard rocker used by various manufacturer
> Height/Weight/Skate size
> Skating Style & Position Played
The Profiling system of flatening and Shaping the skate blade optimizes a skaters stride and it fixes many common flaws and variables that can hamper your skating. It is typical that some steel runners can vary widely from the factory... some of these variables are:
> Inconsistent location of the blade holder on the skate
> Incorrect radius & lie on the blade based on the players profile
> Inconsistency of the toe & heel shape
> Uneven Blade height (most common issue to be fixed)
So, what exactly will Profiling or Contouring do for me?
Well, a few good things...
> Identifing a skaters center or balance point to improve efficiency.
> Adjusting the lie or angle of the skate blade helps with pivots, tighter turns, and backward skating.
> Finally, the profile or overall shape (Rocker) of the blade is Optimized for more Power and Speed.
All of these elements combined, will help the skater to achieve more balance, control, speed and overall enjoyment, with less fatigue.
